ArtisticUK Fairy Experiences
Artistic UK is now offering the chance to book your little fairy's in for a photo shoot, any day of the week or weekend, for as little as £60. This will give more time in front of camera, in fact, nearly double our event sessions, and, the opportunity to come back and view your images on the same day, edited.
Another bonus, the session is private, giving more time for nervous children to settle and relax before the photography starts or maybe that you, the parent, might like to be included. We have some great photographs of mums with children.
Another new feature is our online booking service, so you don't need to call us. Just email your details and fairy names and we will send you an email link to book your session.

Family of Fairies-21630A mother and children session.
As an official photographer for the Royal International Air Tattoo at Fairford, I had the pleasure to meet and photograph a man who, in my opinion, is a true hero. George "Johnny" Johnson.
Now, I am not a man who gets excited about meeting important people, but when I approached Johnny Johnson I felt privileged to be shaking his hand. That is a strange feeling for me, as I feel everyone is special for so many different reasons, but this man, along with many others who went to war for our freedom, stands out from the crowd.
To cut a long story short, after talking to the Red Arrow pilots and mentioning to them that Johnny Johnson was here, they were eager to meet him. Seeing them interact gave me much pleasure and a good feeling that today, 70 years after such bravery, today's pilots still felt men like Johnny were important enough to take time out from a very busy and demanding schedule.
On that day I saw many 'important people' want to meet this hero and when I took pictures of him with the Red Arrows it was a pleasure to see some very important people getting in on the photographs.
This spring, George 'Johnny' Johnson releases an autobiography of his life and the part he played in the Dambuster raids; it's called The Last British Dambuster and I wish him much deserved success with it.
My last word is a thank you to his son Morgan, who I am sure is responsible for including one of my photographs of his dad and the Red Arrows team in the book. I feel very proud to be associated with this book and to have met two very fine gentlemen.
Thank you for reading.

Melksham Oak Community School Prom 2013
We had a great time at Grittleton House with the students of Melksham Oak Community School this friday.
Grittleton House is a great stage for the prom which made taking the photographs much easier with such fabulous grounds and house as the main backdrop.
Inside we had a room to ourselves where the students came to have their photographs taken and on our site we have uploaded both the arrivals and posed shots.
Hope all students had a great time.
